Also available now: “you, genesis” – poems by Rachel Sturges, a first book of poems by former NH Youth Poet Laureate, 2019-2020. Review by Corinne Chronopoulos, Director, Peterborough NH Town Library: "The first publication of a collection of poems by Rachel Sturges, titled “You, Genesis,” truly feels like a beginning.

The compilation reads like a brave reckoning, both a beginning and a goodbye."
